My paintings start with a big-bang of colors, which swirl into quiet spaces and are sometimes obliterated and reformed into new creations. The canvas is my edifice, where my meditations and my prayers are heard. Since I have no end image in mind, my hands and mind are free to explore where theses layers take me. Acrylic paints and mediums lend themselves well to my process.

Ultimately I want each one of these paintings to touch a chord within me. Then, I believe I can touch you.
